What are Lab Grown Diamonds?


Just as the name suggests, lab diamonds are stones that experts produce by depositing chemical vapor. The process begins with the slimmest diamond slice possible, picking the portion where the diamond’s crystalline structure is already in place.


We usually refer to this bit as the diamond seed, comprising of pure carbon composition. Next, the experts place the diamond seed in a vacuum where carbon molecules assimilate.


The process of lab-created diamonds is an accelerated version of what happens within the earth’s crust over millions of years.

Selecting a Diamond Shape


If you’re ready to get your custom lab diamond ring, here’s how to go about the process. For customization, you should start by choosing your perfect lab diamond first. Here are the most popular shapes to choose from:


Round: features around fifty-seven to fifty-eight facets for maximum brightness, sparkle, and fire


Princess: features a sharp square and geometrical shape, with strong and singular lines. It also resembles a pyramid shape, carrying beveled four sides


Cushion: elongated cushion cut lab diamond is a distinctly old mine, with a rounded square shape


Radiant: a romantic fusion of square and round diamond cuts with fifty-eight facets


Asscher: it’s an emerald square cut


Emerald : most popular as a step cut. Due to the step cut, this stone produces a hall of mirrors effect


Oval: this is round, elongated brilliant cut


Pear: brilliant combination of marquise and round cut


Marquise: features pointed ends with an exaggerated elliptical outline



Lab Diamond Quality


Price range: it is important to decide on a price before buying to stay within budget


Carat weight: depending on your personal preference, it is better to decide your carat weight as well. One carat is a popular weight choice for rings.


Cut: In the case of lab diamonds, the cut is the most important feature. The quality of the cut influences the sparkle and fire of the stone.


Color: D-E-F grade lab diamonds are more expensive since they’re colorless. However, G or H color grade is a splendid choice for lab diamonds weighing more than 1 carat because it minimizes the appearance of yellow undertones. When you’re unsure, the best choice is to select a lab diamond with a color grade between G through J.


Clarity: IF and FL diamonds are the best in clarity but also quite expensive, especially if they have a higher carat weight. If you’re shopping for a custom lab diamond ring on a budget, then it’s best to remain within the VS1 or VS2 category. They’re clean and also affordable.


Custom Design Process


Once you choose the lab diamond, your next target is to make a fully custom ring design. Here is an outline of the highly essential design process:


1. You must send a detailed description, image, or drawing of the custom lab diamond ring in your mind. We will then provide you with a quote based on your description. Provide your metal preferences here too.


2. Next, receive a 3D-modeled ring design as a render that allows you to see the ring from all angles. We will get your feedback, as you speak with our head designer and gemologist to revise the design.


3. Soon after, your ring-crafting process will begin where the makers will fix accent diamonds of the highest quality in your piece. The center diamond will, of course, be of your choice. We will keep you updated every step of the way.
